Car manufacturing at lowest point since Second World War
Many car makers turned to making personal protective equipment for healthcare workers during the pandemic.
However, the SMMT said it expected lost production this year would cost the sector up to £12.5bn.Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said,"With the UK's car plants mothballed in April, these figures aren't surprising but they do highlight the tremendous challenge the industry faces, with revenues effectively slashed to zero last month.
"Manufacturers are starting to emerge from prolonged shutdown into a very uncertain world and ramping up production will be a gradual process, so we need government to work with us to accelerate this fundamentally strong sector's recovery, stimulate investment and safeguard jobs.
"Support to get all businesses through this short-term turmoil will ensure the UK's many globally-renowned brands can continue to make the products that remain so desirable to consumers the world over and, in turn, help deliver long-term prosperity for Britain."
